Michael Lohan, reacting to ex-wife Dina’s bizarre interview with Dr. Phil, says Dina “needs to sober up, [as] she’s at a really bad place in her life.”
Asked if he felt Dina was under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the TV chat, Michael responded to WPEC-TV in West Palm Beach, Florida by saying, “Do I have to answer that?”
The outspoken show business parent, who’s expecting a child with gal pal Kate Major, said Dina “went over the deep end” when she found out Kate was pregnant with his child.
He said Dina likely agreed to the interview with Dr. Phil to further alienate he and Lindsay “as a way to put a wedge between us.”

Michael tweeted early Tuesday that the Dr. Phil show “had soooo much I sent them that they didn’t reveal” in regards to proving Dina’s allegations false.
In regards to her accusations he was violent with her during the 19 years they were married, Michael admitted to hitting her one time following a long night out at a strip club.
“When I came home at 2 am, [I] was greeted by an ice tray,” he recalled. “Dina hit me with an ice tray, [and] as a natural reaction — I know it’s wrong — I turned around and slapped her.”
As for Lindsay, her father said “she’s struggling along, [and] I hope she gets her life and her career back together,” adding he’s never taken any money from his actress daughter.
